BYE BYE TIBERIAS – Interview with Filmmaker Lina Soualem

Filmmaker Lina Soualem talked with our Gadi Elkon about her mother Hiam Abbass, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunts as she looks into her maternal side with her feature documentary, BYE BYE TIBERAS.

30 years ago, Palestinian actress Hiam Abbass left her native village Deir Hanna in Galilee to follow her acting dream in France. Camera in hand, her daughter Lina questions her mother’s bold choices and the way the women in her family – who she has left behind – have influenced her life. How do those who live on the screen of our memories define who we are today ?

Our Gadi Elkon had an amazing chat with Filmmaker Lina Soualem about new documentary BYE BYE TIBERIAS, her previous feature documentary THEIR ALGERIA and so much more.

Interview with Filmmaker Lina Soualem:

The film is out in NYC and will open in LA this Friday January 19th.
